Marriage Made In Heaven (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Ever since their relationship reignited, both of their parents and families started to undergo many unfortunate events. The businessmen had to declare bankruptcy. The government officials were stripped of their ranks and banished into exile. The boy’s sister went missing. The girl’s brother became disabled due to an unfortunate accident.
As a result, their parents became very strongly against their relationship. Their parents even threatened the lovers with their deaths just to force them apart. They had no other way out, so they came here to die for love.
Both of them had certainly regarded Shen Nianmo as their savior, so they became very hopeful after sharing their love story with him. “Little celestial being, how can we break the curse? We only want to be together. Our matter should not affect anyone else.”
Shen Nianmo was lost as well. He shook his head to dismiss their hope and answered, “I do not know.”
Their remaining hope quickly dissipated. They looked at each other in the eyes and kneeled so suddenly. Both of them bowed to Shen Nianmo, hoping that he could save them from their misfortunes.
Frowningly, Shen Nianmo knew that he had heard about the Love Bracelets, but he was not sure from when and where.
He wanted to say something back, but a voice came interrupting him. “Their matter has nothing more to be considered.”
Bewildered, the couple raised their heads to follow the voice. Above, two beautiful people were floating indistinctly in the air. Their faces were dimly visible under the thin, foggy clouds, so the couple could not see their appearances. However, they knew that the duo must be unusually attractive.
Shen Nianmo looked at them with his big, bright eyes and called out. “Father! Mother!”
Intrigued, the couple took another look at one another and bowed to the sky. If the duo in the air was really the parents of the little celestial being, they must be even more capable. The couple felt that there was finally hope, so they quickly bowed for assistance.
Gu Xijiu hid in the air. She was surprised to see Shen Jiuli and his wife. Before, she was perplexed to find Shen Nianmo traveling alone. It made more sense that he was actually there with his parents.
She was deeply moved when she heard about the Love Bracelet. Suddenly, she felt an unknown sense of grief, as well. She had just realized the severe consequences of breaking off a marriage that was made in heaven.
In that case, a marriage that was made by heaven was not necessarily a fortunate thing, unless the lovers were bound with unconditional love. The lovers would only be blessed when their love for one another was persistent. Unlike the unfortunate couple that chose to break off from their destined marriage because of their sullenness, their destiny became more like a catastrophe.
The couple kept bowing their heads desperately, so much so that their foreheads were starting to bleed. Ning Xuemo felt that the couple deserved to be punished, but her recent mood also suggested that all lovers should be bound together happily. Moved by the couple’s sincerity, she turned to look at Shen Jiuli for his approval.
Shen Jiuli sighed. He knew the way but did not think that the couple would be able to achieve it. For the sake of his wife, he told them about it honestly. “One should not ruin a marriage that is made by heaven. Once broken, it is considered over. Should you choose to stay together, misfortunes will soon uncover. However, if you are really determined to keep the relationship, there is a way. One of you has to die. Once reincarnated, you will meet again and resume your conjugal felicity. In other words, one of you has to sacrifice your life willingly for the other half to stay. Also, the one who chooses to die is required to do a good deed by saving the common people. The one who stays should wait patiently for his or her return. The curse will be broken when the dead one is brought back alive.”
The couple was stunned. The girl could not help but ask. “What if the dead one reincarnates and forgets about the one who stays? Will all the wait be in vain?”
Shen Jiuli answered nonchalantly, “If your love for one another is deeply rooted, you will feel the same for one another even without remembering anything. You will be back together as one after some time.”
